Reviews

"Italian Folk Magic is a charming, honest, and practical insight into an area of witchcraft that's often been overwrought with unnecessary outside influences. If you gather at the hearth of the Italian household, you will find a beautiful practice that doesn't require the dressing of ceremonial magic or recreated rites. Through the author's family tales, I was transported back to my own childhood memories of my Italian family in South Philadelphia. While magic traditions will definitely differ from family to family, region to region, there are underlying threads that are strikingly familiar that will speak to every reader. Through stories of recipes, superstitions, saints, and more, Mary-Grace serves up a delightful dish of a book that speaks to the heart of Italian witchcraft practices. Truly inspiring and a wonderful read!"--Laura Tempest Zakroff, author of Sigil Witchery: A Witch's Guide to Crafting Magick Symbols and The Witch's Cauldron: The Craft, Lore and Magick of Ritual Vessels
"Mary-Grace Fahrun's Italian Folk Magic is an intimate journey into the heart of Italian folk magical practices as they are lived every day. Having grown up in an extended Italian family in North America and Italy, the author presents us with the stories, characters, saints, charms, and prayers that form the core of folk religion, setting them in context in an authentic, down-to-earth, and humorous voice. A delight to read!"--Sabina Magliocco, Professor of Anthropology, University of British Columbia
"I seriously love Mary-Grace Fahrun's Italian Folk Magic. It has given me so much witchy wisdom I couldn't put the book down. Magic is everywhere." --Hilarie Burton, actress
"This is an extraordinary book, a divine gift from Italian ancestors full of ordinary ways to live an enchanted life. In revealing 'folk magic' practiced and passed down through generations, Mary-Grace tells favorite family stories, opening the door for readers to enter the magical world in which she lives, wherein we discover our own. My Polish soul fell in love with these Italian sisters and the wisdom they reveal and will do so evermore as I make their magic. In any collection of book on magic, Italian Folk Magic belongs on the top shelf."--Karol Jackowski, author of Sister Karol's Book of Spells and Blessings
"Whether you are of Italian ancestry or not, Italian Folk Magic is a great practical book full of history, culture, recipes, remedies, insight, magic, and more which is sure to effect and shape your perspective on witchcraft and your everyday life. Rue enthusiastically invigorates a waning layer of folk tradition with a burst of momentum for a burgeoning generation of folk magic practitioners."--Chris Orapello, artist, author, and co-host of Down at the Crossroads
